a chance to explain what would happen to your taxes they were in charge. >> the question is not where we have been but where we are going. >> it's going to take a different path, not one x have been on, not the one the president described as a top down cut taxes for the rich. that not what i'm going to do. >> it's not possible to come up with enough loopholes for individuals to avoid raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. >> there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they are advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving opportunities to middle class. >> i have got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that not always true but repeating it hoping i will believe it. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> we do better when the middle class is doing well. by giving them those tax cuts they have more money in their pocket so maybe they can buy a new car. >> under the president's tax policies middle americans have been buried. they have been crushe

>> eric: that's it for us. >> jamie: shannon? >> my plan is not to raise taxes on anyone. i'm going to reduce taxes for middle-income americans. >> mr. romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for. >> you can't have it both ways. a battle over $5 trillion, your tax dollars, president obama says a tax cut by the governor would roll out benefits to only the wealthiest americans at the cost of the middle class. romney says, no matter how many times the president says it it is not true. who is telling the truth? i'm shannon bream, live in washington. we have representatives from both sides of the aisle. rnc chairman, reince priebus and dnc chairwoman, debbie wasserman-schultz. welcome. we start in washington with reince priebus. i want to talk about the unemployment numbers for september, 7.8%, the lowest since president obama has been in office. he said, you can't turn back now, america is moving in the right direction. has he made a case that we are seeing recovery? >> not at all. first of all, we will let the economists argue over the numbers. i know people are
, only 2 voted against the plan by the time we were finished. we didn't raise taxes. you raised them by a trillion under obama care. we didn't cut medicare. of course, we don't have medicare but we didn't cut medicare by $716 billion. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they're going to receive. we didn't also do something that i think a number of people across this country recognize, which is put people in a position where they're going to lose the insurance they had and they wanted. right now the cbo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. and likewise a study of mckinsey and company of american businesses said 30% of them are at risk of being dropped. for those reasons, for the tax, for medicare, for this board and for people losing their insurance, this is why the american people don't want obama care. it's why republicans said do not do this, and the republicans had the plan. they put a plan out. they put a bipartisan plan. it was swept aside. i think something this big, this impo

solution to our budgetary problems has to involve spending cuts and tax increases. ronald reagan agreed to tax increases when it hit 4%. george w. bush did. but today's republican parties is organized around the proposition that no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. the simpson-bowles proposal calls for 1% for every $3 of spending cut bus every republican presidential candidate during the primaries including romney pledge thad he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant $10 of tax increases. so romney could present a serious plan and then h would face a revolt within his own party. so his solution has been to be it lerly vague about how to deal with the actually deaf sit. when pressed for details he said, the devil's in the details. he's right. were he to get specific he would be committing ideological blasphemy. instead he talks about freedom and capitalism. the same pattern emerges on immigration. he says he wanted to solve the immigration issue permanently but he can't propose anything practical because that would talk about le
they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify? jamie: stu varney the host of varney and company joining us. i listened to it and read tonight print, is in any other interpretation. report no, vice president biden got it absolutely right. that's an objective statement of fact. income down $4,000 in those four years. 54,000 down to $50,000. personal wealth, a lot of it destroyed in the housing crash. down 30% on home prices. then there is the american dream which is fundamental to middle america. that's not been destroyed. but many middle class americans no longer share that dream. so over 50% think the future will be worse for their children than it is now. so in the early part of the day joe biden got it right. the middle class has been buried the last four years. later in the day he tried to wash it back saying the middle class has been buried by the policies which ryan and romney supported. that's how the day ended. what percentage of the policies the president says he's been working t
. >> it was performance art. he locked himself into some bad positions that he took during the republican primary, tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas, refusing to ask the wealthiest for a dime to reduce the deficit and those give us big openings to talk about on the campaign trail in key states in the weeks ahead. >> vice president biden, meantime, said his boss did a good job drawing a bright line between his policies and mitt romney's. >> i think the president did a wonderful job in making it clear just how stark that choice is. >> keeping them honest, that is precisely where the pundits, even those who support president obama, say he dropped the ball and when we asked our viewers whether mr. obama did better or worse than expected, 61%, nearly two in three, said he did worse. as for why the president himself suppliedn answer today. twice today out on the stump using nearly identical wording each time. listen. >> when i got out on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney's been r
% off brake pads and shoes at meineke. >>> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he would have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how could we ever trust him here? >> roller coaster week hitting a high note for president obama. the new jobless numbers are easing the pain of his poor debate performance and bring romney's momentum to a sharp stop or it may not. joining me now, "new york times" columnist, nick kristof. let's start with the job figures today. because it's clearly good news for barack obama politically if nothing else. >> not only the numbers today but the revisions for the last two months. we seem to really be on a trajectory and you know, this is going -- apparently what really matters is not the economy for the year but the economy at the moment as people approach the election. people are beginning to vote. >> the good news for barack obama there. not so good news his performance at the debate. common consensus is a bit
with the tax reform and the entitlement cuts. if romney were to win, i think the perception at least, you know, without thinking about the entitlements, reform, that we think there would certainly be some good forward movement on that. i think the perception would rather be that he might clear some of these regulatory burdens which come out of the dodd frank legislation, which come out of the healthcare, and that might allow the economy to do better, so you get, you know, the equity market to respond a bit more positively, perhaps, and treasuries a bit more negatively. dagen: got you on that, chris. one last thing, though, we got that report, speaking of the economy, from adp earlier today, is there any reason for us and you to believe that job creation will pick up significantly in say the next six months? >> i don't think significantly, no. the adp report is nice. we like it because it gives us something to trade, but there's been very little correlation between adp data and non-farm payrolls. and frankly as we go from where we stand now into the end of the year, and the first part of next y
bill clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [cheers and applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward, not now, not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers. train two million workers in community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half, create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from end the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation-building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that is how the you strengthen the middle class. that is how you keep moving forward. that is the choice in this election. and that's why i'm runni
about their tax plan. so sean, we'll hold governor romney -- >> let me comment. [all talking at once] gregg: revenue neutral. that means zero. was asked about the math. twice said revenue zero. that is a zero. that is the digit. that is the math. >> is the math is how you get there. that is the math. >> plan on the website. go look at it brad. >> doesn't balance, sean. >> unlike the president --. gregg: we could go on and on. brad woodhouse, sean spicer, gentlemen thanks very much. >> thanks, gregg. jenna: the threat of a nuclear armed iran one of the big topics when it comes to politics and when it comes to foreign policy. the israeli prime minister sounding the alarm. we'll talk about the pros and cons withdrawing a red line with the rogue nation and talk about american leadership with a former advisor to six secretaries of state. he will join us next. >>> plus look at this. nature's wrath. a powerful storm tossing a car around like a toy. we'll tell you where.

taxes. >> reporter: he does. to put the genie back in the bought and take the bite out of the remarks. deep criticism for the way he called folks who don't pay income taxes essentially lazy. here is his new remark delivered yesterday to the local fox affiliate in denver upon mr. romney's arrival. >> they want to know, will i get jobs for the american people and get rising incomes. and i'm a president for 100% of the american people. that's the real percent people care about. not 99 versus 1. not 47% versus anyone else. i will be for 100% of the people. >> reporter: but he's not walk away from the accusation that the obama agenda amounts to a dependency society. bill: one corner this guy, the other corner that guy. you have got 50 million viewers at a minimum ready to watch it tomorrow night. thank you, carl. carl cameron live. martha: new developments in the kidnapping of an american journalist in syria. austin tice was captured by islamic militants in august. his kidnappers have released a video. what have we learned? >> reporter: the big question is who actually has austin tice. ori
's the governor, health care and obesity are important issues, overweight people tax the system much like smokers, is that an issue? >> the fact that he came out and became vulnerable is really what it's about and would have earned him those votes. look at obama telling america, i'm going to quit smoking for you, i'm going to work for it. michelle saying, watch him, let me know how he's doing. so i think the point is, we all have foibles. but when you talk about, you asked earlier about a politician potentially using drugs and alcohol. those kinds of chemicals affect their judgment and their decision-making ability when they have to make public policy, don. >> good point. >> that's a little different than someone reading the news and being judged for what she looks like, instead of how she thinks and what she does. >> go ahead, emme. >> absolutely, i agree with you, doctor. i think we have to take a look at this. the people who are larger in this country, it is the last laugh. it is the joke that's acceptable. it is truly -- there are children that are committing suicide, that are being home-scho
